Full Text

The brig J.R. GIDDINGS, Capt. Billings, arrived from Milwaukee, on Saturday with a cargo of 9,600 bushels of wheat for H.N. Kinne, of this years crop. The berry is full and plump, and taken together, it is one of the most beautiful lots we ever saw. If this is a specimen of what Wisconsin is going to send us, her wheat will soon stand at the top of the market with us.
      The GIDDINGS, by the way, was run into, off Point Abino, on Friday night, be the schooner FUR TRADER, and considerably damaged. Her staunchions, one side from the main to the forward rigging were drove in, her mainsail split, and other parts of her rigging injured.
